Katherine or "Kate" as everyone called her, peacefully surrendered her life on May 28, 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer. Kate was born, raised, married, worked, and retired in Little Current. Kate and her late husband Steve Pinch, are survived by their daughter; Brenda Rintoul & fiancee Greg Selinger, Grandchildren; Steven & wife Sarah, Suzanne & Rick Germain, Great grandchildren; Anika Jane and River James Rintoul.

in 1945 the family moved into a new house where she resided until she moved into Little Current Place. Kate loved it there and enjoyed the company and social functions with the residents, whether it was a game, working on a puzzle or a meal.

Kate was a housewife and also worked at Fairways and then in the kitchen at the Centennial Manor until she retired. When she was not working, Kate kept herself busy with her hobbies; bird watching, reading, knitting, crocheting, genealogy, see a word puzzles and when she was able, gardening. When she wasn't doing one of them she would be watching sports on T.V. She enjoyed the company of her close friends and going out for a meal or for a drive to look for deer.

Kate was very close to her family and spoke with them daily, keeping her informed about their lives in British Columbia and often talking about hockey, baseball or curling that was on the T.V,

Kate and her family are very grateful for those who made it possible for her to remain at home.Special thanks to Dr. Roy Jeffery, Janey Kuchta, V.O.N., C.C.A.C & Janice Mastelko who's caring hands nursed her unconditionally over the years and saw to her needs, we cannot thank-you enough.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you Brenda, Greg, Suzanne , Steven & Janis as you gather with family and friends to say good bye to this lovely lady, loving Mom, Great & grand mother, friend to many and for me a very special aunt.

Lots of memories, too many to share, she will be missed especially by us on our future visits to Manitoulin. But l am sure she is being given a grand welcome in her new home by many who loved her and have gone before her.

We wish as you know that we could be there with you all at this time.

Love & hugs

Mary & Charlie
